    But I’m glad they got to vote. I would have hoped, though, that such a momentous decision would require more than a mere plurality.

    And they also tried to stack it for a ‘yes’ by allowing 16 year olds to vote. That’s just insane.

    I heard one of the socialists on tv this morning, expressing his anger and disappointment that the vote didn’t go the way he had hoped. He said he would continue to fight for independece, despite this travesty. Only a lefty socialist would refer to the voice of the people as “this travesty”. What a tool.

    That’s because the voice of the people only counts when it echoes the left’s views.

    Mr. B, the Scottish ‘parliament’ also restricted it to those domiciled within the borders (shutting out those living elsewhere in the UK).

    What’s going to happen now will be interesting. Cameron & Co made a lot of promises that are going to be very costly to keep.

    The “yes” vote was comprised of sentimental nationalists and people who want free stuff. There is no way that Scotland can afford to provide the bennies that the SDP promised. If the “Yes” vote had carried, there would have been massive capital flight and the EU would have been ticked off and would not have allowed Scotland easy or automatic entry (the EU fears all the ethnic splinter groups throughout Europe). Also, Scotland is not exactly oppressed. The Barnett formula in effect means that they get a lot more out of the UK than they put in.

    I’m glad reason prevailed here.

    Not SDP, SNP.
